Hey, I recognize that!

As I look around during my long commute to school, I realize, "Yep, I've been on this particular train before."

Someone has defaced the sign on the door at the end of the compartment.
Instead of:

                         DO NOT LEAN AGAINST DOOR
                               NO PASSING THROUGH
it reads:
                         DO NOT LEAN AGAINST DOOR
                         NO   ASSING     ROUGH

Now, I've heard of "roughhousing", but "rough assing" is new to me. Hmmm...on second thought, I really don't want to know more.

Have a great weekend and a Happy Easter, everyone! I'm going to be working and studying for a nutrition exam. And working on a paper. And doing chemistry homework. Yay.

Same to you Lady!

"Rough assing" sounds like what gunnies do to mall ninjas, no?

Lissa, if I were to speculate...;)

Rough Assing...

Either that was written by an ex-con, or someone who was pretty kinky.

Ah, this is an oldie but goodie to someone who has ridden the MBTA since childhood. It seemed, at one time, that every other door on the trains had been made to say "assing rough". For some unknown reason, it still tickles me to read it, as illiterate and nonsensical as it is.

I remember seeing that on one of the old wooden-seat MBTA trains in 1981, and asking my mother what it meant, to the great entertainment of my older brother.

Jim and Paul, I'm amused and entertained by it. Less amused by all the TRASH people leave behind on the train! What is wrong with some people?!
